With the plastic glove box in place and the door installed, the dashboard is complete!

Yes, the hood lock is installed, and replaced, and reinstalled, and adjusted, and readjusted.

Yes, it has finally submitted to functioning after repeatedly locking me out in half-latched aggression against its master.

Yes, I am allowed to feel.

The home made automotive carpet is cut and installed! This feeeeeels great.

For the aluminum threshold trim I used 3M VHB tape because I did not want to drill holes in my sill.

p.s. Victor's speaker panels are foreshadowed, but it's not time yet for the proper outing and thank yous. I want to get the speakers in first.

Here Marcel is modeling the swimming pool hoses to defrost hoses hack, which consists of cutting the plastic hoses a bit over length, wrapping Gorrila tape at the bottom to press fit a seal, and then spring fitting them into place.

For the bonus round, the old Empi short-throw shifter is back at home with a ready-for -anything attitude. Cool

Good lord, man, that carpet looks amazing. Where did you source that roll?
Don't tell me - "Amazon automotive carpet search?" Your cat is just cruel, ghosting your work w/that BFD look. You need a small furry dog to fawn over your every step.

Lol, V we've got three dogs so believe me hanging with the cat is a welcome change of pace. Smile

My friends, if I have $80 (eighty) dollars into those rolls of carpet and foam it is overestimating the cost. A Menards opened near us and had an insane sale on that carpet. I bet automotive/marine carpet is at the other home improvement stores as well.

Its cut pile, not looped. It cuts clean and easy with carpet shears without any stray yarns.

In all honesty, it looks better in person because the camera exaggerates the lines and wrinkles. I was worried that it would look terrible and now I will never think about using a kit.

Thank you so much for the encouragement guys. Its motivating to share the build.

Cleaning and organizing doesn't feel like progress, but it is a necessary evil.

Coffee is a super food V, as you know. The bolder the better. Wink When you travel to the midwest we'll have a cup from the stove-top Bialetti.

Hey Fredybear, Victor gave them to me Very Happy And he found them in his basement Laughing

Yes I like them Cool

They are ABS plastic, precut, well-formed to the body of the bug and seem to be readily available from the usual sustpects (like J-bugs, for example, or whoever)

There are also heavier fiberglass ones out there at, again, some of the usual suspects (like J-bugs, for example, or whoever) plus the fiberglass companies for our scene, like maybe Mark V or Glass Action I suspect.

I am going to stick some sound deadening on the back of them before I screw them on to deaden any vibration.

Because this is Samba time, not my time, I must now say:

THANK YOU VICTOR!!!!!!!! Applause So very cool of a brother, and so typical of this whole Volkswagen scene.

I can't wait to mount the speakers and wire the components. If my maker is willing I'll have a post on that whole situation in the near future, I think is a bitchin' set up that is about to get unleashed, proportionate to this little tin can of a car.
